Hey everyone! I wanted to give you an update for something new that I was thinking about to introduce to TheBeautynerd.nl. I lately have been posting three articles per week instead of the usual two because I just have so many things that I want to show you. However, it takes a huge toll on the time that I need to invest. The problem is that I don’t have any time left and I notice that my stress level has been up because of that. Therefore, I was thinking to create some shorter articles, “Shade Reviews” being one of them.
Shade Reviews will be articles about products that were already reviewed in the past, only showing different shades and of course letting you know how the shade itself is performing so they’re not only swatches, but also a short review about the shades themselves (consistency, pigmentation, application etc). I will just skip everything about the packaging, since I already have explained everything about it in a previous article, which I will link in the swatch review.
I have reviewed a lot of same type of products over and over, and I continuously repeated myself in each article, which is something that I find unnecessary. Examples of products that I have reviewed in the past and I have more shades of are the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks and the Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks. If there is a product that hasn’t been reviewed before or if something has changed in the packaging, I will of course write a complete review or do a comparison between old/new.
So in short, products with new shades that already have been reviewed with no changes in packaging will become Shade Reviews in the future with a link of the full review. New products will be reviewed the same as I always have done. This will save me quite some taking pictures, editing, writing etc.
Let me know what you think about this idea!
